the audioguide was in art critic rubbishspeak. The outdoors cafe has a nice jazz band by the park/ fountain which is lovely on a sunday sunny afternoon with coffee. The large sculptures that you can walk round ( in and outside ) are very good.

What a building! While I was a little disappointed with the positioning of the building, the actual building did not fail to amaze me. The exhibition was good, but a little repetitive in its content. Nice dining room with excellent food.

The art outside (i.e. the architecture) is at least as great to marvel at as the art inside.

Monumentally weird: the building itself is an artistic and architectural marvel, quite independently of the exhibits inside.

Being in Bilbao, visiting the Guggenheim is something we wanted to do. Modern art isn't really my thing, but I would urge anyone in Bilbao to visit. The building itself is stunning and worth going for a walk around it.

Hello, I am not sure about the cost of taking a baby. It could be that they would not charge you for the baby. I would go online to order tickets and see if there is any information about this or you can ask a question.

You can get them at the admissions office easily. No large delays You can also hire a local guide [recommended] and he is going to take care of the tickets. The guide will also give you a walking tour of the city.
